Tools, Tools, Tools.

We need you and your tools to build this playground.  To save cost, we are asking the community to let us borrow your saws, drills, levels, ladders, miter saws, impact wrenches, etc., so we don’t have to go out and buy them.
Your tools will be safe.  You will be given a number and every tool you let us borrow will be inventoried and have that number written or engraved on it.  We promise to return your tools at the end of the week in the same condition we received it.  All tools with blades will have new blades installed before we use them.  You get to keep the blade.  We will check to make sure all safety features are working correctly
All tools will be stored in a locked trailer.  There will be security cameras on site.  There will also be security personal patrolling the constructions site at night.  The site will be well lit all night.  The tool coordinators will check the tools in and out.  We will know where your tools are at all times.  If we break it or lose it, we’ll replace it.

We need you to check in and register your tools the weekend before construction starts.  Others will be using them.  We will publish a schedule when the tool trailer will be open for tool registration and drop off
